Personal Stories

TAPPI uses a Champions' model for co-production, with 17 members from staff and tenants across the six locality testbeds. Facilitated by Co-production Works, the group leads co-production in their testbed and ensures the voice of their tenants is heard.

The Personal Stories below are shared by the Champions and cover the positives and negatives of digital technology and how it affects their lives.
